Walker Named 2021 Best Author by Boston Magazine

Writing, Literature, and Publishing professor Jerald Walker was named 2021 Best Author in Boston Magazine’s “Best of Boston” annual list. Walker’s latest work, How to Make a Slave and Other Essays, was a Finalist for the 2020 National Book Award in Nonfiction.

From Boston Magazine:

In a year when books explicitly addressing racism in America were the hottest topic in nonfiction, longtime Emerson creative writing professor Jerald Walker’s How to Make a Slave and Other Essays stood out for its wry, self-deprecating tone. The essays, which earned him a National Book Award finalist nod, trace his early years in Chicago, his experiences as a Black man in academia, and more, highlighting plenty of heartbreak but still managing to find grace and humor along the way.
